Full description
Take a hike between the bay of Episkopi and Apokrousi and let the scenery and mountain of Vryokastro fascinate you with its diverse flora and uninterrupted view of the Aegean Sea and Kolona Beach.

Starting from the archaeological site of Vryopida, known as the area of the ancient aqueduct, move uphill passing through a natural herb garden of sage and thyme. At the top of the hill lies the ancient acropolis, revealing the marks of the ancient buildings of Kythnos, which live in harmony with the stone houses of the last century.

Afterwards, head south at the ancient port of Kythnos, hooking the cape which ends at Apokrousi Beach. Apokrousi is the largest and among the most beautiful beaches of Kythnos. Due to its unique location, the beach is shielded from the wind while offering a fertile soil for seaweed. Here you can enjoy a swim. On the way home, follow a shorter beautiful path, where you will be able to smell many Kythnos herbs.
